Around the grounds – 31 August 2011
Our page about the Collingwood scoreboard has been updated thanks to local resident David Collopy, who has been photographing the changes to the ground for some years now. As well as a scoreboard photo he sent a fine image of some of the old seating at Victoria Park.
The Busselton scoreboard has had a make-over of sorts and Scoreboard Pressure co-editor Les Everett has captured the changes that have paved the way for night games at the Sir Stewart Bovell Park.
It’s good to see commentators taking more notice of scoreboards and of scoreboard attendants. In the latest batch of Scoreboard quotes you’ll hear from ABC commentators Wayne Weidemann and Ryan Turnbull.
There is also talk about gambling advertising on the MCG scoreboard, a few sentences about settling the score from Sean Gorman’s new book, Legends, The AFL Indigenous Team of the Century, and details about how the Police Association in Victoria is using scoreboard pressure to argue for a pay rise.
